FlashPoint 8″ HDMI LCD – Wireless Remote Shutter

Here Adoroma shows functions of the FlashPoint 8" HDMI LCD Monitor with Wireless Remote Shutter. Could be handy for still photographers, and for video the LCD can be used with the direct HDMI connection. The wireless video feature works through SD cables, and because it will disable the on-camera LCD (for DSLRs), I don't think it's a good solution for DSLR Video shooters.

It also doesn't have all the fancy focus peaking or exposure features of a real dedicated HD Video monitor. Still, if you have some other creative thoughts on to use this product Adorama normally lists the 8" HDMI LCD for $399 (seen here) and on Amazon it's being liquidated for $144 following the link (Click Here).

    @Ramon - Some people are hard on a budget and just need something very basic. If you have the funds and want a solid monitor, the best bang for the buck with all the features, look towards SmallHD.

    I've been reading about lots of monitors in the last few weeks and to tell the truth, I've never been that confused about a piece of production equipment before. Resolution, brands, video features, conectivity, different performances on different cameras, its a lot.

    I'm looking for an affordable monitor with good resolution that works well with a 5DMII and a 60D. I've even considered a tablet like the Nexus 7 with Dslr Controller but question its stability. I got a great tip on a good light here and wish I could be helped with my monitor search since I'm gonna start shooting pretty soon.

    Thanks in advance

    @Hugh - I think there is, but it would have to be a powered unit, and scaling down wouldn't be very clean. Too much extra stuff for little results.

    Is there such a thing as an hdmi to composite adaptor? If so, I could plug the remote module into the hdmi pass-through on my DP4 and have a low cost wireless director's monitor.

    With Magic Lantern you can change the start stop record button to the shutter release... so you could effectively have a wireless record button as well.

    I'm not sure what situations that could be helpful in. Just a thought!

    Thanks for all the posts Emm!

    @Joe Chuang - I don't use Magic Lantern, but there are already some cheap dedicated video monitors on the market with more features than this. This just happens to have wi-fi for SD video and remote shutter features.

  7. Emm, just watched Mark's review of the LCD panel, he said there's build in focus peaking mode towards end of the review, around 7:33 mark.

    Also, wouldn't this still be a great monitor for those camera that can run the Magic Lantern? Now I just need to figure out a way to mount the mic as well as the monitor... any suggestions?
